  14. 14. Analysis of a Pitch – Erik’s Intro Hello - I am Erik and I am here to teach you a bit about making pitches, Networking, and having a clear purpose. I work for the Town of Blacksburg. I am the Transportation Planner for Blacksburg Transit, a department of the town. At BT I plan new bus routes and writes grants to fund our wonderful public transit system - and I’ve been to lots of conferences and a few planning workshops. I enjoy networking for several reasons – mainly because it is how I have received all my job offers, how I have received several new ideas, and because I enjoy talking to people. My purpose today to teach three things. First we will learn to make a personal pitch; Second, he will review Networking; And third, I will continually talk about having a clear purpose. So my questions today are, “Why are you here tonight? What do you want to learn?” Again, I am Erik Olsen and my purpose is to talk to you about making a pitch, networking, and remembering your purpose while you are doing it. ©2012 Erik CB Olsen, PhD
